the center of force upon the direction of the velocity; then it is evident from Fig. 128 that

Substituting this value of cos \$ in the preceding equation we obtain

or                               v=^ = ^.                                             (IV)

(4) The angular momentum of the particle with respect to the center remains constant.
This result is obtained at once by multiplying both sides of equation (III) by m, the mass of the particle. Thus
but                      mr2co = Ice.
Therefore                Iu = mh= constant.
219. Equation of the Orbit. — The general equation of the orbit is found by eliminating t between equations (I) and (III). The analytical reasoning which follows does not need further explanation:
